Dakota Kai def. Lacey Evans
Despite having her left arm targeted and brutalized by Lacey Evans, the crafty Dakota Kai stunned The Lady of NXT by wiggling out of harm’s way and picking up the win with a sudden rollup.
Kai barely had a moment to rejoice, however, as Shayna Baszler — who injured Kai’s arm in a brutal attack in January — made her way down to the ring. Before The Queen of Spades could do any damage, NXT Women’s Champion Ember Moon came to the rescue by cutting off her rival while informing her she will finish their rivalry at TakeOver: New Orleans.
Moon then delivered the first punch, sparking an all-out brawl between the heated foes. The Submission Magician eventually gained the upper hand and appeared to be on the verge of doing more damage to the champion’s left arm before Kai reappeared with a kick to the jaw of the bullying Baszler.
This allowed Moon to hit her Eclipse on Baszler and perhaps give the former MMA fighter a taste of what’s to come in New Orleans on Saturday, April 7.
